    Police: Brazil boy stuck with needles in rituals

    BRASILIA, Brazil – The stepfather of a 2-year-old boy claimed he pushed 42 "blessed" sewing needles deep into the toddler because his lover told him to while in a trance, saying it would keep the couple together, according to police.

    One of the needles penetrated the boy's heart, meaning he may need an emergency operation if any bleeding starts, Brazil's Globo TV reported Friday, quoting unnamed hospital sources. The boy also had a fever brought on by a heart infection but he was conscious and in stable condition in an intensive care unit, the network said.

    Officials at the hospital in the coastal city of Salvador have said previously that two needles were close to his heart, one was embedded in a lung and others were dangerously close to vital organs.

    I'm worried about my relationship. I feel like we're growing apart lately. I know! Let's just stick 42 sewing needles into my 2-year-old step son. That'll fix it!

    Some people are so stupid it's unforgivable.

    It's religion at the most basic level of superstition.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    You can't even blame religion. While Santeria is common in that part of the world, I don't think that kind of practitioner would do something so idiotic. These are people who were desperate for a panacea to their relationship and would try anything, instead of actually looking at themselves.

    The gap between rich and poor in Brazil is huge and the poor receive rudimentary education. That is the main problem illustrated by this, not religion.
